Classic Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe by Nurse_Corie

Rolled oats in a sweet cookie dough make this drop cookie wholesome but indulgent. No wonder it is an all time pleaser

These cookies are fabulous! I used quick cooking oats and they turned out just perfectly. I also included the cinnamon - to me, a must have because it adds just the right touch to oatmeal. I will absolutely be making these again! The one reviewer who said that they spread out like crazy must have measured something incorrectly because they were very easy to handle and kept their shape. Using my cookie dough scoop, these made 40 cookies. Made for my adopted chef for Fall PAC 2011. Thanks Nurse_Corie! :)
